The Bioscope independent cinema

  44 Stanley, 44 Stanley Ave, Milpark ,   Melville          +27 61 900 4457     more than a year ago

Joburg's original independent cinema, The Bioscope is devoted to bringing the latest in arthouse, indie, documentary and African films to the South African big screen. Regular events include the French film night Le Movie Club, the Spanish language Noche Espanola, Sing-along cinema and the Kung Fu Noodle Box cinema night.

In 2020 The Bioscope marked its tenth birthday with a move away from Maboneng to a brand new location in one of the courtyards at 44 Stanley, a delightful boutique shopping complex in Milpark near Melville. The new Bioscope cinema at 44 Stanley officially opened to the public on July 30, 2020.

The move to new premises is envisaged as an opportunity to be able to better manage more events, such as private screenings, birthday parties, conferences, and other small-scale events requiring an AV theatre.

There's also a more expanded Bioscope gift shop where you can buy movie-related memorabilia such as books and posters as well as the first physical Limited Edish store selling cool T-shirts (many of them movie inspired) designed by talented illustrator and The Bioscope's founder Russell Grant.

Hi Goran, unfortunately The Bioscope (and other venues in Maboneng) do not have their own dedicated car park. Parking is on the street so proximity to the venue very much depends on how busy it is.
Hi, is there disabled parking near the Bioscope ?
